********************************************

A STUNNING AND VERY RARE PAIR OF ELEGANT ORIGINAL VICTORIAN FRENCH DOORS OR ROOM DIVIDERS.

THESE ARE THE RAREST OF THEM ALL TO SURVIVE.

THESE AND THE LIKES WERE MADE WITH VERY THIN FRAMING TO COMPENSATE FOR THE WINDOW TAX THAT WAS’NT ABOLISHED TILL SOME YEARS LATER SO EASILY DATED FOR US. MORE LIGHT FROM THE FRENCH DOORS COMPENSATED SOMEWHAT TO THE LOSS OF LIGHT FROM BLOCKED UP WINDOWS.  JUST LOVE THESE HISTORIC GEMS.

ALL THE GLASS IS INTACT WHICH JUST BLOWS ME AWAY. ORIGINAL 2 mm FLOATED GLASS THAT HAS ALL THE RIPPLES AND BUMPS ASSOCIATED WITH THE GLASS PRODUCTION OF THE TIMES.

THESE APPROX 1840s.

VERY DELICATE.

THE FRAMES ARE SOLID BUT THE PAINT IS ROPEY BUT SOLID.

IF YOU WANT A PAIR OF DOORS THAT LOOK LIKE THEY SAT IN YOUR HOME FOR MANY MANY YEARS THEN THESE FOR THE PURISTS ARE THE ONES.

WE CAN STRIP AND SAND AND PREP THESE FOR APPROX 500 AS THESE WILL NEED SPECIAL CARE AND ONLY WORKED ON BY HAND.

PREVIOUSLY USED EXTERNALLY

VERY ROBUST.

HAND MADE THROUGHOUT WITH STRONG MORTICE AND TENNON JOINS. ROCK SOLID.

NON REBATED SO CAN BE SWUNG EITHER WAY. WE CAN ADD REBATES TO THESE TO OPEN TO YOUR CHOICE AT COST.

CLASSIC PERIOD LOOK. PERFECT AS ROOM DIVIDERS OR CONSERVATORY FRENCH DOORS.

THESE ARE GENUINELY A MINOR SAND FILL AND PAINT FOR ANY KEEN DIY PERSON
